Spring Gardening!

I have been busy doing Easter gardening. I have dug a trench, laid some edging, put down a few slabs, built a small stone wall, laid gravel and I did this to open up and neaten our small front garden. :D This is the result so far:
When I started this project I didn't think I would like hard landscaping but it was quite enjoyable.
I hope you have all had a super Easter!!

Lucy, what a lovely piece of landscaping, the curve of the path is just right, and breaking up of the line is gorgeous! What a lot of pleasure it will keep giving you.

That's brilliant - you wouldn't like a short holiday in Somerset would you?!!! It all looks lovely and really artistic. If you change your mind about engineering you could always take up landscape gardening instead.

I'm with Jane! If I give you my address do you fancy a week by the seaside? Mum and I could go to the beach and the shops while you get on with re-designing my garden. I'll even throw in my husband as a labourer. Is it a deal?.... Seriously Lucy, you are a one-off. I've never known a teenager with such 'get up and go' as you. Just reading about your exploits makes oldies like me feel very tired! Lesley x

You never cease to amazing me. Now, you are gardening. What a fun project for you. You know I love my garden. Something about getting your hands dirty in the dirt and watching the plant reach for the sun.

Can't wait to see more pictures.

Hope you're getting some rest after all the hard work!

Well done Lucyy. We are just getting round to re-planting, but seeing as we have the chickens, its very hard to plant anything, because as soon as we m plant anything, the hens come along and eat it!!! :) Speak soon.
